Watch Shogun’s right hand. I don’t blame him one bit, either. The man took an incredibly hellacious beating for three rounds and displayed a ton of heart.

Im sure in the next few days we will hear something about something beiung wrong with Shogun during the fight. Not that I see the outcome changing.
shogun just gave birth to a 25 lbs alien baby through his ass
The scene reminds me of those little Japanese men he head kicked into oblivion in Pride back in the day.
Only this time Shogun is the little man on the ground looking for relief from the pain.
Live by the sword, die by the sword.
That’s what truly makes this sport great.
Shogun looked terrible. Not sure if he just didn’t get a chance to adjust to Bones size, speed & rhythm but he let Bones dictate everything.
After watching the fight again I think Rua had already broken mentally by the time he was let up from the first takedown. And then he got lit up with several really nasty strikes. Shogun was never in the fight at all, props to him for making three rounds with that monster.
Jon Bones Jones is a fucking beast. End of story.
What scissors said, the elbows to the gut and his failed attempts to manuever under bones sapped his gas tank quick, that and getting beat up and down his entire body didn’t help matters either.
Bones leg, body and head strikes literally demolished rua, shoguns champion level toughness is the only reason he made it to the third frame. Goddamn at the knee bar attempt to hammerfist transition
Bones is fucking scary.
He can do all that crazy kung fu movie shit (open with a flying knee, transition to a spinning back kick), because he’s absolutely fearless: no one can take him down and no one seems to be able to get past his reach to touch his chin. And even scarier: he’s equally good conventional or southpaw. He switches so effortlessly no one even noticed. I’ve never seen anyone but 10+ year veterans be able to do that.
I think Jones is just ringing in a new era. Personally I think he’s a kind douche, but I do enjoy watching him fight.
He’s upped the genetic bank that people need to buy credit in MMA.
i could give a fuck if he’s sanctinmonious outside of the cage as long as he keeps fighting like he did saturday. that performance was so compelling i couldn’t even be that upset that shogun got his ass handed to him
Just look at the size difference as Jones stalks Rua. He looks like a giant.
Great. Just fucking great. Jones just opened the floodgate for black athletes. Guess what white people…….KISS THIS SPORT GOODBYE!! It’s gonna look like the NFL & NBA in a couple of years.
well we still got the NHL and Golf, for the most part
^ and tennis. oh and 90% of the worlds wealth
cant forget NASCAR
If they approved the use of hydraulics in NASCAR, we’d see a major influx of spanish dudes…..
